Floating Fish by Minnhagen Floating Fish by Minnhagen
This was made for CGSociety's "Strange Behaviour" Challenge. The story goes: In vertical oriental cities, gas-filled floating fish are commonly used for cargo transport. Being very docile creatures, they normally create no fuss. They glide slowly though the crowded markets, letting themselves be steered by their drivers to their docking stations deep within the city. But then once in a while a fish panics in the narrow passages and tries to get away, shaking off the little people climbing all over it and tearing down wooden bridges and market stands. Such behaviour is considered unacceptable and most strange. This painting depicts one such event.

Ha ha, awesome, I love the idea of gas-filled flying lighter-than-air flying creatures- and the story behind the painting is wonderful! :) I like the design of the vertical city- and the three-point perspective, too.

This kind of reminds me of the game Machinarium and Howl's Moving Castle. I don't know Maybe it's because of the color scheme and design of things in the picture, which is great by the way

This one of my favorite pieces to this day. I like the layers of the city, the concept of the floating fish. It really is brilliant. It's given me a lot of inspiration and I value it to this day.
From an artistic point of view, I really do like the style. The movement is great and the colors here and there make the place look exotic but believable. I strive to make pieces like this.
